TRANSITION RESOURCE GUIDE
In preparing to leave high school, students will
have many decisions to make including: What kinds of work do they want to
do? What additional education or training will be required? Where
do they want to live? What will be required to live independently?
What transportation options do they have access to?
Although families are encouraged to begin thinking about transition planning
while children are young, formal transition planning for students with
disabilities should begin by age 14.
Many parents and children find the idea of
transitioning daunting and do not know where to begin. Some parents have not yet thought about their
child’s path after high school. Intersect For Ability of Northern Illinois has
developed a Transition Resource Guide and Video to aid families and students in
preparation for a rewarding life after high school.
The Arc of Winnebago, Boone and Ogle Counties is
pleased to be a part of this project and encourages you to view and download
this Transition Resource Guide and Video if you or a loved one
are beginning the transition process.
